Slightly south of St Lucia’s capital, Marigot is based around one of the most gorgeous bays in the Caribbean and doesn’t fail to stun with its lush beauty. In the past, Marigot Bay has been used to hide battleships but is now a serene place for yachts wanting to spend the night in the harbour after a day in the Caribbean sun and visitors wanting to enjoy the calm waters, fine food and a central island location.
Things to Do
If you’re looking for an excuse to do nothing on holiday, come to Marigot. There is not that much to do here apart from enjoy water sports such as kayaking and pedalos. It’s definitely a relaxing destination! There are also fishing and diving activities to take part in if you want to explore the clear blue waters and during the evening, enjoy live jazz with some of St Lucia’s best and most well-known musicians.
Although you could spend an entire week lounging among the palm trees of Marigot, St Lucia is a great island to explore. Head south to the Soufriere region and St. Lucia’s iconic Piton Mountains or go north and enjoy a catamaran trip from the capital city, Castries, to see this island’s magnificent coastline. If you’re a chocolate lover though, take a tour around a cacao plantation and taste some of the world’s purest cocoa!
Food and Drink
As with the rest of St Lucia, traditional food is very popular – think callaloo soup, breadfruit, mouth-watering BBQ food and yam fries. Enjoying seafood while looking over the bay is a very popular evening pastime in Marigot. Dine on local fresh fish and shrimp while shaded by the palm trees and hills or try out steak that has been coated in homegrown St Lucian chocolate – certainly a taste sensation.
